Henry Cavill leaves the Superman cape behind for Wolverine’s claws in the new design.
A cool new fan edit imagines Superman actor Henry Cavill as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor for the MCU movies.
With the X-Men set to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future, Superman actor Henry Cavill straps on the Adamantium claws to bring a new incarnation of Wolverine to the silver screen in this artwork. Fans have constantly debated who should pick up the role in the MCU following Hugh Jackman, and most recently The Boys star Antony Starr revealed that he’d love to play the mutant. Interestingly, Keanu Reeves recently said that he has always wanted the Wolverine role, but he’s made peace with the fact he won’t get the chance to play the X-Men character.
The concept design comes from digital artist “savagecomics” and imagines a different style for Henry Cavill as Wolverine. Although fans are typically used to seeing Wolverine in a yellow and blue outfit, this tactical look leans into the brown costume the mutant has worn in the past. The artist pointed out in the caption that although many comic readers want to see a short Wolverine after the Hugh Jackman version, they think Henry Cavill could “kill it” in the role. Take a look at the fan art of the Superman actor as the MCU’s Wolverine below.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed plans to include mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
